Since launching in March 2019, we have experienced ever-increasing momentum, producing over 200 exceptional and authentic scale electric cars in partnership with renowned car manufacturers such as Bugatti, Ferrari and Aston Martin. Honouring the most coveted classic vehicles in automotive history, each car is lovingly hand-built at our Bicester Heritage headquarters, using approximately 95% British sourced components. Responding to unprecedented international demand for our scaled electric cars, The Little Car Company has scaled up its business, with the recent acquisition of a neighbouring manufacturing facility to treble production capacity, alongside dramatically expanding the workforce. The Series B funding will allow them to grow even further, both in personnel and manufacturing space.
Increased manufacturing output
With clients in over 50 countries and over 90% of their cars being delivered internationally, appetite for The Little Car Company’s products is at an all-time high. Currently, our brand’s main 10,000 sq ft headquarters allows for a maximum weekly output of up to five cars, but the recent addition of an adjacent 10,000 sq ft manufacturing facility allows us to treble that number in the next twelve months. Much of that increase will be as a result of next year’s launch and start-of-production of the Tamiya Wild One MAX alongside a yet-unannounced project.
Growth in workforce
Since establishing as a business three years ago, The Little Car Company has doubled its team year-on-year and currently employs 60 people, including highly experienced automotive engineers from the likes of McLaren, Williams, Jaguar Land Rover, Ariel, Radical, Aston Martin, Ginetta and Lotus. To help maximise and fulfil our ever increasing order book, we plan to increase this rate of growth to keep up with demand in 2023.
Ben Hedley, CEO of The Little Car Company, said: “Since starting The Little Car Company in 2019, we have seen tremendous growth over a short period of time, despite COVID-19 and industry-wide supply chain difficulties. Surging global demand and our investment so far is enabling the rapid expansion of both our production capabilities and workforce and, as we open our Series B funding round, we welcome all interested investors to join us on our amazing journey. We’ve got some incredibly exciting projects coming up, with as yet unannounced partners, which we can’t wait to share. The Little Car Company is in an exciting position, and we are really going to surprise the automotive world in 2023 and beyond.”
